Huawei Mate 30 Pro Review: Kirin 990, Cameras Beast


Huawei officially released the Mate 30 series mobile phones for the domestic market in Shanghai. The Huawei Mate 30 series has received much attention from consumers since it was released in Germany on September 19 this month. The reason for this is from the Huawei brand itself, and on the other hand, it is because of the identity of the Mate 30 series flagship. In fact, whether you are pollen or a passer-by, you can’t deny that Huawei’s voice in the entire mobile phone market is getting more and more sufficient. The annual Mate series conference is as hot as the iPhone conference.

Huawei’s image performance strength has always been strong, and the release of the latest annual flagship Mate 30 series mobile phone has ushered in further innovation and enhancement in the image field. The strength of interpretation of mobile phone photography, only Huawei can surpass Huawei. In addition to the camera, the new Huawei Mate 30 series is equipped with a new Kirin 990 series chip, with a new design, innovative system interaction, etc., then what is the experience of Huawei Mate 30 series?

Before the official release of the Huawei Mate 30 series, Now it brings the evaluation experience of Huawei Mate 30 Pro to the friends. Huawei Mate 30, and Huawei Mate 30 Pro. This article focuses on the most concerned Huawei Mate 30 Pro mobile phone.

Design & Appearance

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro phone has two very stunning designs, one from the front of the 88° super-curved ring screen and the other on the back of the “Halo ring” four camera.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro is equipped with a 6.53-inch OLED hypersurface ring screen. In essence, the curvature of the two sides of the screen reaches 88°, which is almost close to the right angle. This is called the “ring screen” by Huawei. Covering the front of the entire phone, the side screen is curved like a lake overflowing on both sides of the edge, so that after the phone lights up the screen, it is like holding a screen that is coming out.

The resolution of Huawei Mate 30 Pro screen reaches FHD+ 2400×1176 pixels, supports DCI-P3 wide color gamut, and supports color adjustment and color temperature in the settings.

As a flagship machine, Huawei Mate 30 Pro screen display quality is quite good, the screen performance in standard mode and vivid mode, you can see that in the standard mode, Huawei Mate 30 Pro screen sRGB is 93 %, the average color accuracy is only 1.26. Among the many mobile phones I have tested, the color accuracy of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the highest.

In vivid mode, Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro screen has 100% sRGB and average color accuracy of 1.55. The performance is very good. The specific data is as follows:

In summary, the display quality of the screen of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is undoubtedly the standard of the first-line flagship mobile phone, no need to worry about its display effect. The curved parts on both sides of the screen are not too “perforated”. Of course, this “color cast” is not the cause of the screen quality, but the angle of refraction of the curved screen. As for the anti-missing problem that everyone cares about, there has not been a false touch in the process of using the author.

After reading the front, and then look at the back design, Huawei Mate 30 Pro continues the Mate series of the same aesthetic system – the axis-axis design.

The most attractive feature on the back of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the four large cameras in the back. The four cameras are arranged in a black ring in a very orderly manner. The outer ring is a circle of decorative lights. The official said that it was inspired by ” Halo”, “big round small circle” design is like a mysterious aura around Saturn, the circle represents the most primitive and perfect form, which is the visual element of Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

Outside the ring is a slightly tough square fuselage that incorporates the “small place” that is common in traditional Chinese architectural philosophy. It should be added that the camera of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is protruding from the fuselage, and the supplied protective cover just smoothes the protrusion of the camera.

In general, the design of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is not the best to watch. After all, beauty is a subjective thing, but it must be the most designed mobile phone. This unique design aesthetic is the first sight. It can be identified, and the time of watching will not produce aesthetic fatigue for a long time, and it is worthy of the flagship title.


Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s forehead and chin are also extremely narrow, and the forehead still retains the position of the bangs, but compared to the iPhone 11, the Mate 30 Pro’s bangs area is much smaller, and it is also stuffed with a 32-megapixel front camera. A 3D deep-sensing camera and a posture sensor, the 3D deep-sensing camera brings the 3D face unlocking capability of Huawei Mate 30 Pro, and also obtains accurate depth-of-field information during self-timer, and this new attitude sensor The device expands more application scenarios, such as AI space control, AI screen, AI information protection and so on.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s “space control” is mostly based on AI. It achieves low-power operation through attitude sensor and micro-core NPU and can complete up and down sliding and grab screen capture operations.

For a simple application scenario, when you enjoy a lobster meal, the greasy fingers obviously can’t pick up the phone. When the palm is facing the screen, swing your wrist to slide the screen.

Based on the attitude sensor, Huawei Mate 30 Pro also brings the AI ​​screen-free function, instead of simply transforming the screen direction by gravity sensing, but based on the face facing the intelligent horizontal and vertical screen, so whether the user is lying on the side or sideways The Huawei Mate 30 Pro phone screen accurately adjusts the angle with your posture.

Another example is the AI ​​information protection function, which can intelligently identify the owner. When multiple people look at the screen, the message content is automatically hidden.

There are quite a few small partners who are in Tuyu 2019. Huawei Mate 30 Pro has a bang on the forehead, but in my opinion, if Huawei uses Mate 30 Pro for pop-up procurement, it will definitely avoid the problem of heavy body; on the other hand, The three sensors on the forehead of Huawei Mate 30 Pro are definitely not furnishings. Each one can bring a better interactive experience to consumers. It is obvious that Huawei has adopted a more mature and more practical comprehensive screen solution here.

The 3D facial recognition on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is similar to the 3D structured light on the iPhone 11. Compared with other mobile phones, the 2D face unlocking security is higher, and Alipay’s face payment is currently supported. Of course, as a flagship machine, Huawei Mate 30 Pro still supports in-screen fingerprint recognition, which is an unlocking method than the iPhone 11 series.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro canceled the front handset, equipped with magnetic suspension technology, the call sound is generated by the screen vibration, the mobile phone screen is the handset, the call effect, and the handset are almost the same, in the author’s several calls, even did not find Huawei The Mate 30 Pro has no handset.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro adopts the design of “super curved ring screen”, and the edge of the screen has been extended to the middle frame, which makes the middle frame of the mobile phone become thin and narrow. For this reason, Huawei Mate 30 Pro cancels the physical volume button, which guarantees the most natural beauty of the hypersurface ring screen makes the “curved” area on the side look cleaner and more integrated.

On the top left of the screen, you can see the virtual transparent strip, that is, the volume control bar.
In the actual experience, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has an oversized X-axis motor built-in, so when the sliding screen controls the volume, there is a real feedback touch close to the physical button.

Without the volume button, the screen capture mode of Huawei Mate 30 Pro has also changed. You can take screenshots through AI space control, and the palm is facing the screen. When the “palm” logo appears at the top of the screen, you can complete the screen capture by doing a punch.

On the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, Huawei has given more possibilities to the hypersurface ring screen. In addition to the volume control, the side screen touch can also be used as a function button such as “open mirror” and “shoot” during the game. After the update of the system, I believe that Huawei Mate 30 Pro will bring more functional applications.


Now let’s talk about the chip. The new flagship chip Kirin 990 series has two models. One is the 4G version (Kirin 990) and the other is the 5G version (Kirin 990 5G). Most of the specifications of Kirin 990 and Kirin 990 5G are the same. In addition to whether or not to support 5G, there is only a slight difference between the two. The difference between the two can be seen in the following figure (the yellow part is the difference):

In terms of parameters, Kirin 990 has 2* Cortex-A76 Based 2.86GHz + 2* Cortex-A76 Based 2.09GHz + 4* Cortex-A55 1.86GHz.

On the GPU side, the Mali-G76 is equipped, and the large-core NPU+micro-core NPU is used. In addition, Kirin 990 also introduces Kirin Gaming+ 2.0, combining performance and energy-efficient CPU, GPU, DDR hardware foundation with high-performance, energy-efficient, high-quality solutions to achieve the industry-leading gaming experience; the new ISP 5.0 The throughput rate increased by 15%, the energy efficiency increased by 15%, and the shooting ability was improved.

In the game, we tested the full-quality “Peace Elite”. In a 30-minute game, we measured that the Mate 30 Pro was stable at 59FPS, almost reaching the full-frame effect, and the experience was excellent.

All in all, in terms of performance, you don’t have to worry about Huawei Mate 30 Pro. More importantly, Huawei Mate 30 Pro also has a series of hardware and software-based chicken blood optimization solutions, such as Ark compiler, GPU Turbo, etc. The little friends can deeply appreciate the charm brought by these chicken blood optimization.

In terms of battery life, the Mate 30 Pro has a built-in 4500 mAh battery, 27W wireless super fast charge and 40W wired super fast charge. The wired fast charger can charge 23% in 10 minutes and can be 65% in half an hour. In less than 70 minutes, Can fill the entire Mate 30 Pro.


At the 2019 Huawei Developer Conference, Huawei officially brought EMUI10, EMUI10 brought a colorful AOD screen display and upgraded magazine lock screen, and also introduced 6 colors of Morandi style.

Huawei Mate 30 series is the first model of EMUI10. In appearance, the most significant change in EMUI10 is the quick notification bar. EMUI10 adopts a new style that is more biased towards native Android.

Let’s take a look at the design changes:

EMUI10 introduces the representative style of low-saturation color in the large-area color-Morland color. It may be strange to mention Morandi, but in the costume matching and furniture design, Morandi is everywhere. visible. Morandi does not refer to a specific color system but refers to the painting style of Italian oil painting master George Morandi. Morandi will produce a gentle, shy, quiet and harmonious high-level beauty, so it is also People call it the most gentle color and become synonymous with “senior sense.”

Overall, the EMUI10 is a bit younger and more energetic than the previous generation system, while still having a sense of stability. This “small area with high saturation, large area, and low saturation” can withstand long-term use without Greasy. In addition, EMUI10 also adds a richer feature display function. The default AOD will change colors over time, providing multiple AOD presets and so on.

In other respects, EMUI10 also includes a magazine interface design, dark mode and more. It is worth mentioning that the dark mode of EMUI10 is globally effective.

In terms of functionality, EMUI10 distributed technology can create a “super device” that allows information to flow seamlessly between multiple terminals. The capabilities of each terminal are shared and shared with each other. For applications, it is like running On the same terminal, it is like using the same terminal for the user. When the Internet of Everything broke out in the 5G era, the charm of distributed technology will truly be revealed.


Let’s briefly introduce the parameters of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro rear-mounted super-sensing Leica movie, including: 40 megapixel movie camera (super wide-angle, f / 1.8 aperture) + 40 Megapixel super-sensing camera (wide-angle, f / 1.6 aperture, support OIS) + 8 megapixel telephoto camera (f / 2.4 aperture, support OIS) + 3D Deep sense camera, support autofocus.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro newly added 40 Megapixel movie camera, with 1/1.54 inch large size, equivalent 18mm focal length super wide-angle view, movie camera can shoot 4K HDR video and 4K super wide-angle dark state delay photography, and realize mobile phone The highest video sensitivity of the camera is ISO 51200, and the highest frame rate is 7680 frames.

The addition of the ultra-sensing Leica movie four-shot makes the night shot of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro series even more powerful, and it can have a good impression even if the night scene mode is not turned on at night.

The first impression of Huawei Mate 30 Pro night shots is pure, clear and sharp, and the tone is very rich. In the exposure control is a relatively conservative route, the control of noise is excellent, and there is basically no visible noise in the sample. After turning on the Super Night Scene mode, the overall brightness of the sample is increased by a level, and the hue is cooler.

Under the conditions of sufficient daytime light, the sample output of Huawei Mate 30 Pro can be seen in the past, and the sample has high saturation and high contrast. In other words, the photo taken by Mate 30 Pro has a blue sky. The flowers are more beautiful, like a layer of filter, a thick Leica taste. Obviously, in the control of color tone, Huawei is still a constant force.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro covers 18mm-80mm equivalent focal lengths, including a telephoto camera for 3x optical zoom, OIS optical image stabilization, 5x hybrid zoom, and up to 30x digital zoom.

Overall, Huawei Mate 30 Pro performance is very good whether it is night shot or daytime proofs, once again refreshed the new height of Huawei mobile phone photos, but the most satisfactory for the author, or the next Huawei Mate 30 Pro blur proof.

On the new Huawei Mate 30 Pro mobile phone, Huawei added a 3D deep-sensing camera. Thanks to the addition of this camera, it can realize the depth measurement of the picture during shooting and can separate the subject and the background to achieve high-precision hair. Silk-level map, progressive blur.

When shooting macro, the first feeling of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is that the focus is accurate and fast. The following group pictures are all taken on the roof of the outdoor building. When shooting, there is still a gust of wind, and the grass will sway as long as it will When the mobile phone is close, Huawei Mate 30 Pro can immediately focus quickly. In the proofs, the grain of the tip is very clear, and the blur effect of the vision is also very good. It feels like “opening like a cream”. It is very suitable for a circle of friends. Thumbs up”.

It must be emphasized that the sample rate of these samples is very high, almost all of them are done in one shot. Although some mobile phones can take similar pictures, it may take several times to have a satisfactory photo, Huawei Mate 30 Pro This high filming rate greatly enhances the photo experience.

More proofs:

In terms of video shooting, with the addition of 40MP movie cameras, the powerful throughput of the sensor and the image processing capabilities of the new ISP of the Kirin 990, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro has high-speed photography of up to 7680 frames. What is the concept? There are 7680 instants per second! The rate has reached 256X! I can even capture bullets.

Even some people say that there are not many application scenarios for 7680 frames of ultra-high-speed photography, but I have to admit that this also confirms Huawei’s strong research and development capabilities in cameras from another perspective.

The author took a video of a lighter to catch fire. It can be seen that the sparks of the lighter sparked and caught fire, and even every beat of Mars was captured.


4500mAh battery, dual 40MP dual main shooting, 7680 frame super high speed photography, 7nm Kirin 990, 88° super curved ring screen, EMUI10, double super fast charge, etc., no doubt, Huawei Mate 30 Pro is a very good performance in all aspects Balanced high-end flagship, in the entire Android mobile phone camp, you can hardly find the second mobile phone that is so powerful in the flagship configuration.

In the face of the white-hot mobile phone market, Huawei has its own strong core competitiveness and has been recognized by more and more high-end people. The voice of the high-end market is becoming stronger and stronger. At the same time, with the continuous innovation of Huawei Mate 30 series in the field of cameras, Huawei will occupy more high-end markets in its own self-breakthrough.

Huawei Mate 30 series is one of Huawei’s most breakthrough smartphones in history. It is very much looking forward to the next Huawei, and what surprises consumers will bring.
